It’s time for your summer breakthrough with UW-Madison’s Transfer Scholars Summer Award!

New this year, undergraduate transfer students who enroll in Summer Term 2018 automatically receive an award.

All spring 2018 Transfer students are eligible to receive the award, but must maintain satisfactory academic progress. Sound too good to be true? It’s not. In a 2015 survey, your peers said they were interested in taking advantage of Summer Term but weren’t able to enroll because they lacked funds for tuition. The UW-Madison Transfer Scholars Summer Award is a part of our commitment to helping students reduce their time to degree and debt burden.

Frequently Asked Questions

  

Q: How much is the Summer award?

A: Students who pay the resident or Minnesota tuition rates will receive up to $500 toward the cost of Summer 2018 resident tuition and fees. Students who pay nonresident or international tuition rates will receive up to $1,000 toward the cost of Summer 2018 nonresident tuition and fees.

 

Q: Is there anything I need to do to accept the award?

A: No. If you enroll in summer courses at UW-Madison, the award will automatically be applied to your summer tuition charges. Once financial aid is disbursed in May, you can log into your Student Center and access your Tuition Account Summary. There you will see this scholarship listed as DCS Transfer Summer Schol under pending/anticipated financial aid. By late May, the Bursar’s Office will apply the award to your summer tuition balance.

 

Q: When can I enroll in Summer Term?

A: Summer Term enrollment begins in March. And don’t forget to consult with your advisor about which summer courses match your academic plans.
